Artist Statement

As a self-taught artist with only two years experience I paint to challange myself. The amount of creativity  that was storaged inside me, creates unexpected pieces that are abstract visualisation of all my previous expeirences. As an artist I create work that reflects emotions and chaos in life that we are living. I capture movement and life.

 

I use traditional materials, acrylic paint, charcoal, pastels, ink. I experiment with them to find what suprising final effect can be achieved. 

 

My proces involves working on several pieces at the time to create dialogue between them, moving from one to another allows me develop the ideas and pushing the boundries. This is no going back or correcting proces. 

 

My goal is to inspire those, who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual.
